She will be your Executive Treasurer for the 2018-2019 school year, and hopes to help enrich the Student Government experience for all students. Her role is to oversee the 1.6 million dollar budget allocated from all of the student fees per semester (47.80 per semester). This budget helps organizations and the programming board have successful events on campus. She hopes this year to focus on three main pillars: transparency, sustainability, and communication. At the end of each month, a report will be made available on the SGA website about how much and what the Student Government spends. She intends on focusing on conscious consuming through her year as Treasurer, making sure the Student Government is making fiscally responsible, and making as many sustainable purchases. Lastly, she intends on building a stronger communication between students and the Student Government through creating committees that will involve more students in the campus community. Heather believes in intersectionality, and the importance of conscious consuming.
